In the near future, a charismatic leader summons the street gangs of New York City in a bid to take it over. When he is killed, The Warriors are falsely blamed and now must fight their way home while every other gang is hunting them down.
The Baseball Furies were all around 30 or older and from Stunts Unlimited.
It's still on and we're goin'. Cyrus sent an emissary this afternoon to make sure. Now, Cyrus don't want anybody packed and he don't want anybody flexing any muscle. So, I gave him my word that the Warriors would uphold the truce.
Cleon: Now everybody says...
Mercy insults the Orphans' leader for allowing the Warriors to flash their colors in Orphan turf. Why would this pose a problem if a city-wide gang truce were in effect? Gangs from all over the city flashed their colors in the Bronx when attending Cyrus' meeting as a condition of the truce. It was never established that the truce was called off upon Cyrus' death. Fox and Swan could have mentioned this to the Orphans in their parlay. And if the Orphans sought to be "with it", they could certainly honor the truce.
In the original version, the end credits are followed by 3 minutes of black screen as the Joe Walsh song "In the City" plays.
